Wyoming No Fault Divorce


According to Wyoming no fault divorce laws, one can file for divorce in the state of Wyoming based on the grounds of no fault. Here, a spouse needs to only mention in the court of law that the marriage has “irretrievably broken down” and that there is “incompatibility of temperament” or “irreconcilable differences” between the spouses. In this state, divorce is also granted on “fault grounds” where a spouse needs to prove that the other spouse has indulged in adultery or willful desertion or cruelty etc.

One can hence, choose the ground for divorce. Many spouses wish to file a “no fault divorce” even if there is substantial “wrongdoing” on the part of the other spouse. This is to avoid the messy court battles that might ensue proving the allegations and also involve a lot of time and money. You may file “fault” grounds for divorce if you are likely to have an edge over the other spouse on matters of child custody or property division owing to the fault”. Your attorney would be the best guide on advising the right grounds for divorce.
